Their championship tally is surpassed only by the Green Bay Packers (13) and Chicago Bears (9). To distinguish themselves from the professional baseball team of the same name, the football team was incorporated as the "New York National League Football Company, Inc." in 1929 and changed to "New York Football Giants, Inc." in 1937.Throughout their history, the Giants have featured 28 Hall of Fame players, including NFL Most Valuable Player (MVP) award winners Mel Hein, Frank Gifford, Y.

The New York Giants are a professional American football team based in the New York metropolitan area.
The Giants compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league's National Football Conference (NFC) East division.
The team has also acquired several nicknames, including "Big Blue", the "G-Men", and the "Jints", an intentionally mangled contraction seen frequently in the New York Post and New York Daily News, originating from the baseball team when they were based in New York.
Additionally, the team as a whole is occasionally referred to as the "Big Blue Wrecking Crew", even though this moniker primarily and originally refers to the Giants defensive unit during the 80s and early 90s (and before that to the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s).
The team plays its home games at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, which it shares with the New York Jets in a unique arrangement.
